UMIK-1USB Measurement calibrated microphone for a plug&play measurement of your system.
The UMIK-1 is an omni-directional USB measurement microphone providing Plug & Play acoustic measurement. From speaker & room acoustic measurement to recording, this microphone provides low noise and accurate results you can rely on. Forget about driver installation, OS compatibility and un-calibrated mics. The Umik-1 is a USB Audio class 1 device automatically recognized by all Operating Systems (Windows/Mac) and Ipad with Camera Connection Kit. It is provided with a unique calibration file based on the serial number to insure an accurate measurement. Combined with our recommended acoustic measurement software, it is the perfect match for a plug&play measurement system.
- All measurement software
- Special features such as calibrated SPL measurement enabled under free Room EQ Wizard (REW) software
- Frequency response: 20 Hz - 20kHz +/-1dB with calibration loaded
- USB Audio: USB Audio class 1.0 Driverless interface for Windows, Mac & Linux

Unique Calibration File Download
All UMIK-1 are calibrated with a unique calibration file. In addition, a unique auto-generated 90-degree calibration file for use with the nanoAVR DL is provided. To download the calibration files, look for the 7 digit Serial Number found on the body of the microphone.
- Enter the serial number in the form below (three digits then four digits e.g. 700-XXXX).
- Your calibration files will automatically download in most browsers. If not, click on the links provided to manually download.
If link above doesn't work, please use a direct link: http://www.minidsp.com/images/umik/70xxxxx.txt (where xxxxx is the unique mic SN#)
Which calibration file should I use and where to point the UMIK-1?
We provide two calibration files to be used depending on your application.
- For stereo system (e.g. 2ch dirac live, single speaker measurement), use the 0deg file and point the UMIK-1 at the speakers
- For multichannel system (E.g. 5.1/7.1) or a surround application where multiple speakers are spreadout around the room, use the 90deg file and point the UMIK-1 at the ceiling.

The miniDSP team built long term relationships with the following leading software applications and is proud to showcase them as our recommeded software solutions:
REW: miniDSP worked along with John Mulcahy to develop even greater compatibility for the UMIK-1 inside REW! With the latest beta release of REW (v5.01 and up), the UMIK-1 is automatically recognized by the software and prompted for use when REW is started with the microphone plugged in.
Dirac RCS: As a well known reference in the world of room correction with countless high end audio/automotive, we're honored to have Dirac as part of our partners. Dirac RCS is available in two version (stereo or multichannel). Please consult Dirac's website for more info.
Umik-1 on Ipad: Our technical team has been testing the UMIK-1 along with few ipad apps. A plug&play setup for a full featured measurement + SPL meter running from the Ipad. Check out our application section for more info.
Fuzz Measure Pro v4: Fuzz measure is no stranger to acoustic measurements. This very powerful Mac only software is now fully integrating import of UMIK-1 calibration file and automatic SPL calibration. Make sure to check it out!
Amarra Symphony: Amarra Symphony with IRC is an advanced music file player for the Apple Mac platform. It includes a feature called "Impulse Response Correction" (IRC), that corrects for acoustical errors at the listening position caused by early reflections from the speaker and listening room. It also provides the ability to tailor the response at the listening position using target curves.

Application notes on UMIK-1
With the miniDSP UMIK-1, you have an easy way to get started with acoustic measurement: to optimize and equalize your subwoofer, to correct for room effects, or even to design your own loudspeakers! In this application note, we'll show you how to get up and running with the UMIK-1.
After getting used to the basics of in-room measurement with the app note UMIK-1 setup with REW, you may want to perform some more advanced measurements. In this app note, we will explain some techniques that will help with your active loudspeaker design. We will assume that you're already up and running with the UMIK-1 and REW.
In this application note, we will show you some basic acoustic analysis techniques that you can apply to measurements of your listening room made with the UMIK-1 and Room EQ Wizard (REW).
Top notch. Complete plug and play solution with a calibration file that makes messing with off-board sound cards a thing of the past.Russell Williams
Good product that allows you to not have to much around with phantom voltage sources and XLR to USB adaptors. My only complaint is the use of mini USB socket - as it is quite difficult to find a long cable with this type of USB - and so adapters and extenders became necessary again.Graham
Good product really. easy to use, just plug and play. Good case and perfect value for the mVolodimir Saburov
